The USA U18 Women’s World Championship has won their 5th gold medal in six years!

The team took on Canada in the final today in a thrilling 2-1 victory that reached OT. Abbey Murphy (Illinois native lets goooooo) took an early lead for team USA 14:38 into the first period.Β 

Canada’s Sarah Paul got even 5:38 into the 3rd period thus pushing the game into OT.

But Team USA said sit down ladies.

After an agonizing 16 minute OT, Kiara Zanon ended the match with a beeeeaaauuuttiful OT goal (with a beautiful assist from Maggie Nicholson) to give the US the goal.

The video gives me chills. It’s like Miracle all over again.

Congrats to these women who work their bag off both on and off the ice to put women’s hockey on the map in North America. All of them are helping grow the game and that’s why they’re legends.
